To celebrate the upcoming release of Fallout 76, Bethesda announced a charity auction with HYPEMAKER in order to create custom power helmets for auction in its #HelmetsforHabitat collaboration. The auction is available from October 25 through November 14 and features a slew of different artists.
Bethesda, in partnership with Xbox and HYPEMAKER, the creative agency of HYPEBEAST – a leading fashion, culture, and streetwear online destination – are teaming up to launch #HelmetsforHabitat: a charitable initiative to auction off custom Fallout 76 power armor helmets. Dozens of renowned artists from around the world will adorn the iconic T51 power armor helmet in their signature style. Beginning today, visit the official auction site at Paddle8 to check out and bid on the full selection of customized helmets.
All proceeds from the final auction sale of each helmet will benefit Habitat for Humanity, a global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries, to advance the vision that everyone deserves a decent place to call home. In the spirit of Fallout 76 and global rebuilding, Bethesda is thrilled to continue its support for Habitat for Humanity and their noble mission to transform lives and communities through affordable housing.
Bethesda’s previous initiatives with Habitat for Humanity include donating proceeds from sale of the “Take Me Home Country Roads” cover as heard in the official Fallout 76 announcement trailer, in addition to donating sales from the traveling Mement-o-Matic coin pressing machine. Bethesda is committed to donating a minimum of $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity over the course of these charitable initiatives.
For a limited time, fans in the New York City area will have a chance to see the helmets up close and personal prior to the auction end date. From October 25 through November 14, the flagship Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue will feature a special exhibit on the third floor that showcases a selection of helmets.
